The Mort Union of Infected Mushroom is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by House Rainey with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 12.243 billion citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crayon City. The average income tax rate is 20.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Infected Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 3,396 trillion IM Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 277,405 IM Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, all footpaths have tollbooths, new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, and the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles'. Crime is totally unknown. Infected Mushroom's national animal is the Pixie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Infected Mushroom is ranked 158,951st in the world and 4th in Mount Olympus for Most Pacifist, with 5.37 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
